100 point drubbings are the epitome of soul destroying.

Tonight was just a ******* s**thouse performance.
But the most sh**house score EVER!!!!!!!!! Can't go past that fact. Worst in 150 years FFS. Cannot be ignored. I think its time for bed for me. I'm having flashbacks of the 60s and winning one game for the season.

South Dragons, Storm.
Geelong scored 69 points tonight. That would not have been a winning score very often in any season I can think of from a team sitting at the top of the ladder, playing at home with the umpires up their arse.

Questioning Shaw after tonight just makes you look like an idiot.

Three things to consider imo:
  • This looked likely to happen ever since Rhyce took over
  • One goal for the game was a true reflection of the contest
  • Clearly there's no chance of bouncing back next week
Does anybody think there's a grain of truth at all there? I don't.

Problem is the ultimate field-day question likely to be asked of the higher-ups: If this scoreline occurred a few weeks ago, would Rhyce still have been appointed so quickly (or at all)? There isn't a way to answer that without raising a whole lot of eyebrows.

Lol... "that would have been a winning score very often" You know what score wouldn't win very often? 14! 14 points is abysmal. I know you're trying to frame it in a positive light but for who? People on this forum? For yourself? What's the point. Call it as it lay.

Small sample size but from what I'm seeing the top one is a possibility to eventuate. It fits in with his coaching philosophy too.

I’d take our lowest score ever and getting beaten by 55 points than a 100 point belting any day.
Need to score to win.

492% in the cats game.
239% in the freo game.

Need to score to win.

I know Rhyce is a "defence first" coach and keeping Geelong to 69 points is great but our future is bleak if we're going down the Ross Lyon/Freo/Longmire/Sydney route.

Need to score to win.

I was pi**ed with tonight's game too but let's not start rewriting history, it was our lowest score in VFL/AFL history that started 94 years ago, looking through some VFA games between 1897 and 1924 we score 14 or less 8 times with our worst score in 1900 being 0.5.5 against Footscray, I am pretty sure prior to 1897 we would have scored under 14 a few more times too
